Testimonials

In September my family and I went to Florida on holiday with the hope that we might purchase a home as this was the second time in a year that we took a 20-hour flight to Fort Lauderdale so obviously we’re a fan of the beach town. We’re originally from Canada and the US but have lived in Hong Kong for almost ten years. Upon arriving in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale we checked out Zillows online for houses to view and that’s how we met Nicole. Her profile was very exceptional so we thought it was worthwhile connecting with her to show us around. Nicole was diligent in the selection of the 3 properties she took us to see; all the houses had their unique character that was paired to our interest shared with Nic…
In September my family and I went to Florida on holiday with the hope that we might purchase a home as this was the second time in a year that we took a 20-hour flight to Fort Lauderdale so obviously we’re a fan of the beach town. We’re originally from Canada and the US but have lived in Hong Kong for almost ten years. Upon arriving in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale we checked out Zillows online for houses to view and that’s how we met Nicole. Her profile was very exceptional so we thought it was worthwhile connecting with her to show us around. Nicole was diligent in the selection of the 3 properties she took us to see; all the houses had their unique character that was paired to our interest shared with Nicole so it was hard to choose as all properties had a lot of features we really liked. Seeing us struggling Nicole brought us to see a 4th property which, incredibly combined the key attributes we loved about the other properties. While we were experiencing the excitement of viewing these beautiful houses and the agony of making a decision, Nicole shrewdly read our reactions and responded almost in real-time to hone in on the home that was perfect for us. Impressively this was not an ordeal that took weeks or even days, we met Nicole after lunch at her office on Las Olas Blvd, and by 5 pm that day our time was well spent and we had enough info and decided on the 4th property. That said, as impressive as that afternoon was, we only had another 3 days left in Fort Lauderdale before returning to Hong Kong, so we needed to make an offer and secure a mortgage approval while still wanting to enjoy the beaches and visit the Florida Keys, By the time we left Florida, Nicole completed 3 rounds of negotiations resulting in an offer that was accepted, and helped us secured a montage approval so we were in business. However as we thought more about the next steps, inspection, insurance, mortgage paperwork, closing, etc, it seemed almost impossible to accomplish all those tasks remotely from Hong Kong, but Nicole calmly reassured us that she’d handle stuff locally and keep us informed. After 6 weeks of What’s Up chats and FaceTime, we closed on our new home. It’s Dec 6th as I writing this review and I’m on a flight back to Hong Kong as I spent the last 3 days in our new home in Fort Lauderdale, It was a wonderful and exciting experience working with Nicole. Her knowledge, stewardship, and dedication were absolutely phenomenal so I wholeheartedly recommend her expertise and professionalism for an awesome and successful home-buying experience.

This first time buying a home and Nicole Alvarez was invaluable in my entire home buying process. She broke down the entire purchase process from the start to the finish, from looking at houses to the paperwork and time-sensitive information. She was on top of the process the entire time. did not drop the ball. Nicole (and her appointed team) gave me all the advice, insight, and real estate lingo that I needed to make this transaction go smoothly and in my favor. Even more so with her team of associates, whenever a hiccup happened due to real estate circumstances they were 100% available and worked with her to make everything click. I couldn't be happier with my first home and I fully recommend her to any…
This first time buying a home and Nicole Alvarez was invaluable in my entire home buying process.

Nicole (and her appointed team) gave me all the advice, insight, and real estate lingo that I needed to make this transaction go smoothly and in my favor. Even more so with her team of associates, whenever a hiccup happened due to real estate circumstances they were 100% available and worked with her to make everything click. I couldn't be happier with my first home and I fully recommend her to anyone purchasing a home in south Florida. She knows her stuff and knows how to get things done on time and for the buyer. She really looked out for my best interest and I am happy with my home purchase! Nicole helped me purchase my first home and coming into it blindfolded she really helped me and I wanted to give an honest review to anyone that is looking to purchase a house. I 1000% recommend Nicole Alvarez and The Howland Group.

Nicole went above and beyond the call of duty to help my family and I find our Dream Florida home. She worked with me for months prior to my arrival due to the pandemic and travel restrictions. She kept In touch and kept me updated on the constantly changing market. Her dedication and patience were simply fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. She always made us feel comfortable throughout what could be a very stressful process. To be honest, if it wasn’t for Nicole being who she is, I can’t be certain that we would have found anything at all. Her expertise and positivity kept us going. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we are excited to now call her our friend.

I was referred to Nicole, and honestly, I couldn’t have been happier about choosing her to be our realtor. She made the entire process of selling our home feel like a breeze. She understands people and understands how to provide the best service she possibly can. She knows the market, and because of this, she knows what is in the best interest of her clients. She made me feel comfortable about a process which to me was very stressful because early on I could tell she had it handled.
